The national spokesperson for the Republican Party had a public meltdown on CNN while attempting to defend President Donald Trump.


Republican National Committee national spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany lashed out after being informed, possibly for the first time in her life, of the fact the Founding Father's original views on women and race.

Shortly after stating her contempt for women's right to choice, McEnany said it was "scare tactics" for Democrats to warn of Trump's Supreme Court nominee overturning Roe v. Wade.

"I think it is a scare tactic to dissuade us from picking Constitution-loving, conservative judges," McEnany argued.

Later in the segment, longtime Democratic strategist Peter Emerson gave the GOP spokesperson a quick history lesson on the history of the Constitution.

"I will say something, that Kayleigh's response is one of the most disingenuous responses," Emerson suggested. "Constitutionalists and Federalists would take us back to the Constitution, which was for white property owners, men."

"It's not for blacks, it's not for Hispanics and it's not for women," Emerson reminded.

McEnany was shocked to learn how few people were originally protected by the Constitution.

"The Constitution is the founding document of the greatest country on earth and for you to cast it in a racial light is absolutely ridiculous," McEnany argued.

Then she went even further, suggesting that noting facts about the Constitution was basically unAmerican.

"That dishonors our founding fathers and the principles the country stands on," McEnany argued.

"It is not dishonoring, it is recognizing what history is," Emerson replied.
